‘Zombie’ Angelina Jolie revealed her real in an Iranian TV interview after being released from jail for blasphemy charges.
Sahar Tabar, 21, finally unmasked herself after being imprisoned by Iranian authorities for obscenity and insulting the hijab in October 2019.
She was arrested for ‘corruption’ and ‘blasphemy’ and was sentenced to prison for ten years. However, after serving jail time for only fourteen months, Sahar, real name Fatemeh Khishvand was released last year, as reported by activist, Masih Alinejad.
“Sahar Tabar is only 19. Her joke landed her in jail,” Ms. Alinejad wrote back then.
“Her mother cries every day to get her innocent daughter freed. Dear Angelina Jolie, we need your voice here. Help us.”
Tabar was dubbed a dead ringer for the Salt star, and people called her a ‘zombie’ and a ‘corpse bride’ for her horrific attempts in order to look like the Hollywood superstar.
“The social media maven was rumoured to have undergone at least 50 surgeries to achieve the ghoulish look that earned her thousands of followers,” The Sun wrote.
“She sported a razor-sharp jawline, an oversized pout, icy blue contact lenses, and washed-out skin, amping up the illusion that she had just been dug up.”
However, last year in October, during a TV interview, Fatemah Khishvand gave up the ruse and revealed her real face after she was released from prison.
In the interview, Khishwand revealed she never went under the knife to achieve that horrible Angelina Jolie lookalike face.
Instead, she used the computer and photoshopped her pictures using makeup and several editing applications to increase her followers on social media.
“What you saw on Instagram was the computer effects I used to create the image,” Ms. Tabar said in the interview.
“I just wanted to be famous since I was a child, and I believed that cyberspace was an easy way. It was much easier than becoming an actor.”
She also said she had stopped using Instagram after her arrest and would never put the photo-sharing app again on her phone.
“My mother was telling me to stop, but I didn’t listen,” she said. “Sometimes the words of a stranger or a friend can be more important than those of a parent.”
The Iranian expressed her regret over her disguised and spooky posts and said she didn’t intentionally base her zombie character on the Maleficent actress or corpse bride.
“Although Sahar has not publicly discussed her time in prison, human rights groups claimed it is riddled with disease, has poor sanitation, and is rife with torture, murder and rape,” per The Sun.
